It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there – and the law of the jungle says that only the fittest will survive. But as a mischievous red monkey, a scary green baboon and a big purple gorilla show us, sometimes there’s more to being top banana than having the biggest teeth or the loudest growl. Wonderfully textured animation makes the jungle come to life in this endearing tale that shows why sometimes co-operation is a better solution than competition.
